COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Jack IPA is our first ever Imperial IPA. It features a big malty middle to cloak the high alcohol and mouth puckering hop bitterness. Huge tangerine, grapefruit and juicy fruit aroma blossom over the herbal blue basil and malt earthiness of this aggressive beer. Best enjoyed in moderation.

Prufrockstar (980) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Aroma is big spruce, citrus, grass, some caramel, bread. Clear amber orange with white head that dissipates to a ring. Irregular lacing. Strong hop bitterness through and through. Almost harsh. It figures that now that I’m finally getting to rate this I’m not picking up as much on the malty sweetness that usually holds it together from the bitter start to bitter end. I suppose that’s the nature of this game, though -- snapshots in time. Medium body, average carbonation, long bitter finish. Overall: this is one of my go-to favorites, but it probably wouldn’t be if this rating was my first time with the beer. I wonder how many other potential favorites I miss because of the circumstances under which we meet for the first time?

Excellent XXIPA. Hoppy aroma and peppery hoppyn bitterness. Some alcohol catches me off guard. Overall great beer and will have again. Oh BTW it was in 12 oz bottle

Wow. Great flavor. Enjoyed the balance. Slight alcohol on palate but not over powering. Loved the pour. Always enjoy Firestone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

spokeydonkey (12) - somerville, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pours a bright gold and clear with a quickly receding white head. Aroma is caramel and lemon-centered. Taste starts off caramel sweet with citrus and stone fruit behind it. Finishes sweet with lingering bitterness. Medium-heavy bodied with a lot of sticky sweetness. A little alcohol heat, but it’s hidden behind the sweetness. Overall: Decent, but a bit too much on the sweet/caramel side to be really drinkable. The finish especially is sweet and a little syrupy rather than crisp and dry. A good DIPA, but not one of the more drinkable ones.

didierlewallon (69) - ponferrada, SPAIN - SEP 27, 2014
Es una cerveza de color naranja dorado con una grande y cremosa espuma blanca. Su aroma es de mandarina, pomelo y fruta jugosa. Cuerpo Maltosa y sensación alcohólico en el paladar. Tiene una amargura muy intensa. Es una cerveza impresionante.

esox (1080) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottled. Cloudy pale amber color, creamy head. Caramel infused resiny aroma, sweet floral notes and fresh peach juice, slightly acidic grapes. Heavy maltiness with plenty of caramel flavor, but not sweet. Bitterness could be stronger, but this was an aged individual. Highly resinous finish. Almost full bodied, frothy texture is fresh. Very good!

Handypaul (214) - - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small but lasting white creamy to frothy head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is of resin, rich tropical fruit, floral and citrus. Lightly sweet and medium bitter taste, with flavors of juicy grapefruit, honey, sweet tropical fruit. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation and a lightly bitter and long finish. Solid malt backbone and not hint of alcohol. Wow.
